Why did you choose to pursue a residency?

I wanted to gain the necessary experiences that residency training provides that would otherwise take a long time to accrue.

What attracted you to the Froedtert & MCW pharmacy residency program?

I was fortunate to work here as a technician and as an intern and experience the dedication of the staff. I wanted to be a part of the Froedtert Hospital team, especially after hearing non-healthcare workers refer to Froedtert Hospital as one of the top hospitals around and as highly respected within the community.
